What about our dancers, placing 2nd and 4th? We could have not one, but _two_ dance teams on the Olympic podium.

Of course the men are receiving the most attention in the U.S. Only the U.S. men (and dance) have a good shot at winning or medaling. However, lets be real. The excitement will still be the ladies if Kwan and/or Cohen came back. Lysacek, who to me has always been a factor for the gold will have to take a back seat if they show up. Now if neither Kwan or Cohen show up then Lysacek will be it for U.S. just because the media will decide that there's no other favorite amongst the men. Who knows.. if Kwan and Cohen don't try maybe Rachel and Caroline with make a run for it since they are consistent. The favorites usually make mistakes and make a way for the lucky ones to win in the ladies field.
